The Quezon City government on Monday, Sept. 19, held the ceremonial turnover of more than 1,000 laptops to public elementary and secondary school teachers and children development workers in the city, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte led the ceremonial turnover which was attended by public elementary and high school teachers from Quezon City Public School Teachers Association (QCPSTA), child development workers from the public day care centers under the city’s Social Services Development Department (SSD), and members of the City Schools Divisions Office (SDO).

The local government said 1,000 laptops will be distributed to public school teachers while 50 will be given to child development workers.


It added that the devices, which will help the educators in their online classes, creating lesson plans, and other activities, are on top of the 5,593 laptops that were already distributed to the teachers.
